Have you ever wondered how wedding planners and stylists get married? Me too! Today I’m thrilled to say we have all the answers, as lovely Lauren and David are sharing their stunning Wiltshire wedding on the English Wedding blog today. Lauren is the owner of Lauren Alexander Weddings – she’s also an English Wedding reader and has shared some fantastic tips with us in a brilliant interview (which carries on beneath all of the beautiful photographs). Lauren and David describe their day as, “Fun, boozy, eclectic, beautiful, happy, musical and ‘us’.” – which is, for me, everything the perfect wedding could ever need. There are stunning styling touches as well – plenty of DIY ideas and the FUNNEST and most gorgeous wedding shoes! I just know you’ll love this! Over to Lauren… 

Welcome to the weekend! And OMG – to June! And roll on summertime… I can’t wait for lazy sunny evenings and beach sunsets 🙂 Today I have a stunning late summer wedding to share with you. Gorgeous couple Rachel and Ben had a very relaxed, informal, vintage-inspired day with a party vibe for the evening party. The wedding breakfast was loosely based on Alice in Wonderland, complete with mismatched crockery and vintage cake stands with styling touches in dusky pinks and mauve.

Refined elegance is a thing we do oh so well in this country – and today’s couple Charlotte and Nick chose to keep their day perfectly elegant with pristine details and the prettiest styling. Pale blues and white florals make this a really beautiful day, with the cake and bouquet both being showstoppers I think you will LOVE!

Beautiful bride Charlotte wears a stunning traditional dress with embroidered bodice and layers upon layers of tulle for a fabulous skirt full of movement – while her gorgeous groom Nick looks the part in a traditional morning suit with a pale blue tie and white wedding waistcoat.

Emma & Matt’s wedding was a beautiful and elegant one held at the Georgian House, Shilstone. The look is elegant and graceful, with pretty pink and white florals. I love the subtle autumnal twist to the flowers – they’re full of texture and look wonderfully natural with a mix of gorgeous greenery, blousy blooms and delicate smaller flowerheads.

Emma’s stunning dress is tightly fitted with a beautiful lace design and a flowing veil – she looks amazing! The pics of Emma & Matt sharing some quieter moments around Shilstone House are romantic and beautiful – and there are tons of styling ideas in here for you to gather and get inspired by!

It’s the weekend so let’s PLAY! I have the funnest, prettiest, PINKEST wedding to share with you today, with gorgeous couple Poppy and Panos. They married in church and had a reception at Rectory Farm in Cambridge, where they styled the marquee with two beautiful big chandeliers hanging from the roof, and decorated the dace floor with huge pink paddle balloons with pink and white tassels. The David Austin roses everywhere are such a show stopper – this is most definitely a wedding for those of us who love pink!
